Houston Calling

The week in Houston rock

September 11th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Lots of good stuff here this week–Austin City Limits can be credited for much of that–including Sparklehorse at The Proletariat on Wednesday night, Calexico at Fitgerald’s on Thursday, a free Gnarls Barkley show at Warehuse Live on Thursday, The Raconteurs at Verizon on Thursday, Massive Attack on Friday night, and The Octopus Project and Enon at The Proletariat on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists play with Houston’s own Spain Colored Orange and The Like Young at Walter’s on Washington.

There’s a lot of good local music around town this week as well. The Black Math Experiment plays with Oneness Darkness and Avenger at Helios on Saturday night. AndDon’t forget about Rozz Zamorano’s jazz-rock combo at Dan Electro’s in the Heights on Sunday night.

    Is Calexico really playing Fitz’s on Thursday? It doesn’t say anything on either website.
